Yellow is a colour seldom favoured. Most people prefer red, blue, purple, green, pink, even orange over yellow. The colour is often associated with cowardice, caution, illness and aging.
Looking at my wildflower guide, I would guess yellow boasts more blooms than any other colour. From the bright spring dandelion to the lovely swamp marigold, yellow blends well with the fresh green of the season.
The yellow catkins of the weeping willows stand against the blue of the lake's waters just as the sun contrasts the blue sky. What says spring more than the flowers of a forsythia?
Many spring birds come in yellow, from Warblers and Meadowlarks to Goldfinches and the fuzzy gold of baby ducks and geese.
I see boldness, beauty, and new life in the yellows of spring.
